As usual, the Curriculum Innovation team will be delivering their Digital Leader Academy programme, aimed at Primary schools in the Bradford area, from September 2017. Over the past 7 years we have successfully trained more than 400 Digital Leaders.
Digital Leader Academy programme enables children to:
- Describe and model the safe and responsible use of a range of technologies.
- Demonstrate appropriate knowledge and understanding of specific technologies relevant to each school context.
- Exhibit good communication skills and collaborate effectively with staff and students.
- Understand the concept of ‘Student Voice’ and become a conduit for this across the school with reference to the use of innovative digital and mobile technology
The academy runs 3 cohorts over the year where a member of staff and 6 children attend 2 half day training sessions, a celebration event and receive a school visit. Included is full support for staff and children for a year through the online Edmodo platform and the award of Digital Leader virtual badges and certificates for achievements completed by the pupils.
